If your company requires or wishes to perform manual or schedule scans, you may wish to select the Ignore Secure Scanning Optimization
under the Scan | What to scan
With the Ignore Secure Scanning Optimization
selected for the manual / scheduled scans, all databases and documents are scanned for viruses but are not modified with a new SSO tag/
If your system is set to only use SSO for inbound email scanning to eliminate redundant scans as the message is passed through the network, you may wish to ensure you disable the SSO options within the manual and scheduled scans. When the manual and scheduled scans begin to scan all the databases / documents for viruses and the SSO is not disabled, it will modify all documents with the current SSO tag, causing undesired modifications and replications through all databases.
